Summer, Where You At?

13:14:00
I have mentioned over the past couple of months, that I was nervous about my summer plans. I spent a lot of time applying for internships and waiting to hear back. Recently, everything is slowly falling into place. I am not going to lie. I was not looking forward to this summer cause I hate uncertainty. But my plans are starting to work out and I am starting to feel a lot better! I will be interning in Atlanta this summer. I also turn 21 in June! Sooner than that, I will be going to a music festival is some friends from high school. I will also be visiting my bestie in Chicago hence the picture above. I am finally looking forward to summer. I wanted to share some inspiration and get you guys pumped for sunny days and sipping cool drinks by the pool.

Save Or Splurge: Minimalist Gold Mesh Watch

08:41:00






I have been on the hunt for a gold watch for the longest time. Last year, I stubbled across Larsson & Jennings watches and I fell in love with the minimalistic aesthetic but not the price. Since then, I have been looking for similar watches. Even though, I have found brands that are quite similar, I still long for a Larsson  & Jennings watch. As a college student, I tend to put reasonable prices before style. I can not justify spending over $300 on one fashion item. Hopefully when I start making the big bucks, I can afford that lifestyle. Until then, I'll keep looking out for sales and a good bargain!

Olive For Spring?

14:52:00
How are you guys doing? It has been quite the hectic week. While I am typing this I have an assignment due. Procrastination at it's best! This post is not going to be very lengthy I just wanted to check in and show you guys this outfit I wore yesterday. I always gravitate towards natural tones and when I saw this olive top I knew I had to have it. I have been doing some spring cleaning and revamping my wardrobe. Olive is going to be huge this season and this is one trend I am all for!

3 Easy Ways To Stay Positive

14:26:00
I like to think I am quite honest with you guys and I wanted to share what has been going on with me lately. I am currently finishing my third year of college and next year will be my last. I feel life is catching up with me. Adult life to be precise and it can be overwhelming. I used to a very positive person and never dwell on the negative but recently I noticed my outlook on life has not been as bubbly as it used to be. Which is very unlike me. I wanted to return to my old ways of positively and seeing the brightness in everything. Here are some tips that helped me return to my positive ways!
1. Positive People Bring Positive Vibes
This may seem obvious but sometimes the main thing that brings us down are people. Not everyone is negative but there are some people that are constantly in a terrible mood or that purposely point out the negatives. This may be hard because this means distancing yourself from people you may be close to. Do not completely cut them out of your life but take a break to refill your positively before you turn into someone you do not recognize. 
2. Get Physical 
Take a walk, exercise, sign up for that yoga class and practice your downward dog or pick up kick-boxing. Anything that gets your body moving. I realized that once my body is in motion my mind gets clearer. When I am lying down in bed, scrolling through my Instagram feed or watching YouTube videos this leaves room for me to dwell the negative but once I am moving around and doing something active my mind becomes lighter and more relaxed.
3. Lights Off  & Listen
I have mentioned in the past that I enjoy listening to music in the dark. You are probably thinking, "Wait... what the heck did she just say?" I know, I know that does sound extremely weird but it is the best way to unplug and relax. This is by far my favorite way to stay positive. Make a playlist of songs that bring out your best emotions and positive energy then turn off all your lights and listen. Just listen. Do to text and listen or browse Facebook and listen. Do nothing but relax and listen to the music.
